I can't answer your question, but I would like to suggest an alternative
that might be less work. Use cpio to make on output file and compress it
onto floppy using the compress command, which I have checked also exists
on CentOS (I *presume that your old UNIX doesn't have {b,g}zip. I see a
reference also to pack, but it seems to be only man pages. Both of these
compressions programs are very old and should be on your system.

Regardless, fewer floppies will be needed, no kernel recomp or such and
all your risk is some minor attribute/time-stamp issues at worst.

Take a look at the man pages for cpio. You can also use tar for this,
although I really prefer cpio and always have.
